Feeding Boraras Brigittae
So I've got a small school of 15 or so Boraras brigittae (chili rasboras) and I've been trying to feed them more than just crushed flakes.
-I have NLS "small", but they seem to never enjoy it and just suck it up then spit it out almost all the time.
-I feed them frozen cyclops, but they seem to mostly do the same as with the NLS, though maybe not quite as much by a small margin.
I'd like to start feeding them maybe some live cultures, probably worms of some sort since they're easy enough to keep and spread from what I've read. The question is, which ones? I have no experience with any of them so I'm not sure what would be the right size for such a tiny little fish.
I've read that some people feed them grindal worms but those seem like they get too big at 1/4 to 1/2 inch? So would micro worms or walter worms be a better choice? I don't want to go too small either and have the fish ignore them.
Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
